Yes, I have suffered from GAS my entire musical life of 43 years, probably spending more than I've made.
In the studio, the list of needs/wants was limitless, and new products come out every month.
For the live musician, there was always some new piece of rack gear that you needed to help fix the sound.
It was impossible to stop buying the latest necessary item.
My GAS is still pumping, I browse the web daily, on eBay, Musicians Friend, Sweetwater, & Full Compass.
I just finished the latest round of digging for new products.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you look at it, I am just not finding anything that I need anymore.
This must be owed to the fact that with a few L1 systems in your arsenal, you no longer really need anything.
I still get excited seeing the new NAMM raves, but now, I can only sigh, and admit "I don't need that".
More and more money is making it into my savings account, and I think I can thank Cliff, Ken, and Dr Bose.
Thank you to all of you who were a part of this, you have saved me so much in terms of physical labor and cash.
